Screamin' Eagle Compensator Kit 40274-08
« on: July 29, 2013, 05:12:12 AM »
I have been told that this compensating sprocket kit will eliminate or greatly reduce the starter problems on the later model big twin Harley's.
Does anyone have any comments on this kit?

Attached are the instructions for installation.

Side Safe,

Thx for your input Rain Maker.
I heard the new bikes have this compensator installed from the factory.

Thanks for the good info my Brothers.

I just found out that part number 40274-08 has been superseded by part number 40274-08A.
I believe the new part number has oil grooves to fix an oiling problem on the old part number.
Surdyke HD has it for $199.96
Best price I've found so far.

I got mine at South Charleston got a good deal there . When you go to install it you can do it without having to remove the inner primary cover by taking a drimel and grinding a very small amount where you can get the Stator hub to come off ! Worked fine with mine. Because you will get a new stator hub with the kit.

Yeah, I helped a guy do a stator replacement on an 08 and we ground some of the primary away with no adverse effects.
I would recommend using a carbide die grinder burr, about $25.00 at NAPA.

Just did Herb's bike with the new part number...
He said it shifts a lot better and it's quieter...
The starting problems with the loud noise seems to have disappeared...
***The new kit does not include a new rotor***
A rotor will need to be purchased for some models. (Follow the link below to the PDF file for details)
You also have to glue in oil deflectors inside the outer primary.
The glue is also not included.

You will also need a T70 torx bit to tighten the compensator bolt.

      I bought the chrome outer primary cover (needed replaced scuffed in wreck) that has the oil deflector (plastic piece you have to glue in) already made into the cover when I put the compensator kit in.Didnt grind or pop after that,the few times I started it.Youll only have the same problem AGIN if you replace it with the one that came stock in it.

    The chrome outer primary cover that has the oil deflector (plastic piece you have to glue in) already made (metal)into the cover HD # 60553-07A bought for 08 flhtcu 96 . Anyone that has had problems with the stock compensator grinding,kicking back or seems to kick back,poping may want to consider also replaceing there starter drive/bendix while there at it.This bendix problem can and WILL take the teeth off of the flywheel/clutch starter gear.A wore/loose clutch basket bearing will also cause starter problems an noise.Comeing back from logan run my 1200C bendix went almost completely out sounded like it riped all the teeth off,it started the next try,didnt figure I could do any more damage ,in the dark close to buffalo creek almost half way home.I was lucky no teeth off the flywheel. HD wanted over $100.00 for the bendix,on amazon for the 1200 all balls 79-2101 (have to use your bendix shaft an gear) an for the big twin 96 79-2104 (comes complete) both bendixes cost a few dollars less (shipping an all) than HD wanted for the 1 bendix.Time will tell if the bendixes are any good.I did take a larger sewing needle down around the inside edge of the bendix bearings pry up an remove the seals(without damage),rolled the bearings while spraying starting fluid removeing all (VERY little to start with) grease an let dry.Lucas grease gun grease extended duty with green writeing on tube,about 3 table spoons of grease in a cup an 1 table spoon of 80-90 or 140 gear oil mix well repack bearings mashing down into the bearing all the way around (check to make sure you didnt push the back side seal out ),then wipe a little of the excess off down to the balls an snap in the seal,as the bearing rolls it will push grease out aginst the seal.see you guys this weekend.............
